    THE RUN IN

    Post by SuneJim on Sat Jan 11 2014, 03:35

    Now in my humble opinion there are 8 teams in the shake up for the top 4.

    Newcastle, are an outside bet, but still in there after getting important wins over teams you wouldn't expect. Don't really think they have the strength in depth though.

    Everton, playing some lovely football under Martinez (The Manager I wanted at Spurs) but again I think there squad is a bit on the light side especially in real quality.

    Man Utd, for me are the team is the biggest trouble, the loss of Sir Alex can't be underestimated. No one is scared of them anymore and key players are just too old now. Plus they are having trouble in the transfer market, I think the unthinkable will happen and unless they win the CL they will not be in it next season.

    Liverpool, have for me the best player in the league at the moment Suarez, but he's only ever a flick of a finger away from a mad moment that could wreck his and Pools season. They are playing some lovely football as well, but I think they may struggle to end up top 4 and certainly won't win the league. But I do have to give Rogers credit as I hate him for some reason lol.

    Chelsea, have a good squad but it's not a Mourinho squad. They're not physically domineering as he like his teams to be and the lack of a regular goal scorer will cost them dear. Plus I think the clash of egos in the end will do for there tittle tilt but top 4 I reckon.

    Man City, are the best team in the prem, massive squad and top quality and now they've got used to being let off the reigns after Mancini, I can't see anyone finishing above them in the league.

    Arse-nal, Squad to small to win the league especially now Wingnut is out. So without any additions during this window will fade away second half of the season. They just won't be able to keep up the intencity to win it. But have to get Top 4. That damned well hurt to say.

    Tottenham, now my team, no chance of winning it and CL will be tough as for me the appointment of Shitwood says all I need to know Levy and the Board have given up on this season all ready. We have a good squad, but it's still nowhere near gelling, which has lead to quality players (Lamela & Soldado) struggling. We are at the moment trying to get our footballing identity back after the defensive minded AVB. But will it all be to late.

    So I'm going more in hope than anything,,,,,,FOR

    1, Man City
    2, Chelsea
    3, Arse-nal (Still Hurting)
    4, Tottenham
    5, Liverpool
    6, Everton
    7, Man Utd
    8, Newcastle
    But I have to say 4 and 5 could easily be round the other way in all honesty. I'm going for Tottenham not only because they're my team, but because Pool have had a fantastic start to the season and we've had allsorts of nightmares no more so than the loss at WHL to them. But after all that we're still only 2 points behind them.
    Any way I bet a lot of people won't agree with my analysis lol.
    So that's enough from me for now lol.

    Jim, you do not seem to be a fan of Sherwood, other than him being a goon fan, what are your reasons. I must say that your choice as manager Martinez is doing a great job at Everton.
    City
    Arsenal
    Chelsea
    Liverpool
    United
    Spurs
    That dreaded Europa Cup again.

    I really don't see us getting anywhere near top 4 to be honest, I do hope I'm wrong though.

    We will drop to many silly points and I don't believe our squad is as good as some might think. It's a big squad but lacking in quality unlike most of the top sides. It sounds ridiculous considering the money we have spent but there were some very ordinary buys. Where is the one world class player? We don't have one, we did but we sold him to our special friends UnReal Murdrid.

    I think Utd will come good and snatch 4th in the end and I think Chelsea could miss out and what a kick up the arse that would be for Mourinhio, Abramhovic will probably sack him again.

    1 City
    2 Arse
    3L'Pool
    4 Utd
    5 Chelsea
    6 Everton
    7 Spurs

    You are right Mikey about lacking in quality unlike most of the top sides, but these top sides didn't go out and buy seven players. I think this is our problem, it is taking to long to find a settled side and as Jim said for players like Soldado and Lamela to settle in. It does feel as though we are in limbo at the moment and you are right we do not seem to have a world class player, but I feel that if all our new signings do start to gel up to the end of this season, then next season I think we will have a great side, unless Levy decides to sell our top stars and feel that it's about time to have a change of manager.

    Arsenal -/+
    City +/-
    Chelsea
    Liverpool -/+
    Spurs +/-
    Everton +/-
    Man Utd. -

    Best we can hope for is 4th worst 6th.

    Jim I don't think you are alone with your dislike of Lil Tim. A lot of people find him grating & somewhat up his own arse. But hey if he get's results then I reckon I can live with that attitude, but I'm not convinced he will keep getting results. Mind you I always enjoy a large portion of 'umble pie . . . .
